Latest Episode KbP – Mello Wello Cast

leave a comment »

This episode features some very mellow music from the world’s southernmost national capital…Wellington NZ. Rebel Peasant offers up two songs from their upcoming EP “Last Dance is Saved for the Sea”. Not out until October 2008 it is something I am looking forward to with great anticipation. Visit their MySpace page for more songs from the EP.

Spartacus R offers up Sunset to Sunrise. This song was featured as the summer theme song for Radio New Zealand a few years back. Stunning work from all six members on this song. Having said that I am especially keen on Ben James’ clarinet playing. As a former clarinet player myself I have a bit of a soft spot for that instrument and those who play it. The vocals are mighty fine as well. I can’t sing though so I have a soft spot for singers but evny them at the same time. 😉

Also you will hear some funk/R&B/jazz from the organ trio Twinset (Booker T & The MGs are alive and well). Flight of the Conchords fans will recognize the voice of Video Kid in his song Dawnskate – 88 as it is Bret McKenzie (the “weedy shy guy” of FotC). Module and Rhombus also lend themselves to the mellow theme of this podcast with two very laid back tracks.

Be warned, any activity that requires any sort of physical exurtion is not recommended while listening to this podcast. This is meant for kicking back on the porch on a summer night, driving ’round town with the windows down and the breeze blowing in, or vegging out on the couch after a very long day.

Hope you enjoy it.
